A new mobile ultrasound device that costs one-tenth of a traditional ultrasound machine provides primary care providers instant insight.

The Healcerion (Seoul, South Korea) Sonon 300L handheld ultrasound probe is an advanced diagnostic imaging device weighing just 370 grams, allowing it to be used anywhere with the aid of a mobile app compatible with Android and iOS devices, and downloadable from the Google Play or Apple App Store. Using intuitive finger-touch controls and a simple user interface to operate it, the Sonon 300L provides rapid, accurate, diagnostics to improve patient care and procedural efficiency.

Intended to provide a diagnostic ultrasound option for retail clinics, urgent care centers, mini-hospitals, home healthcare providers, and rural and third-world regions, the Sonon 300L boasts a three-hour continuous scanning battery life, Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE connectivity, and support for most medical imaging protocols, including Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). The Sonon 300L handheld ultrasound probe was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“Sonon 300L is smaller and easier to use than any other ultrasound technology in the US market. It empowers American physicians to advance their practice to align with state-of-the-art practices,” said Benjamin Jeongwon Ryu, MD, Founder and CEO of Healcerion. “It allows primary care providers to be more efficient and effective with instant insight to diagnose or refer a patient to a specialist.”
